Old hat now, but for 1948, this thriller filmed on location in
New York City was a rarity for presenting its story off of the Hollywood sets and soundstages.
The story itself is quite run-of-the-mill when compared to
others in the mystery-thriller genre; New York detectives investigate the murder of a woman found in a bath, taking to the hustle-and-bustle of NYC in their chase.
Highly influential, especially with the closing lines of
dialogue, but modern audiences probably won't be as appreciative as those watching in the late 1940's.
